Ribbon tie necklace - 3rd attempt!

This is the third time I have made this necklace! I made it for the first time last year using thread to string the beads and tying the string to the ribbon, it snapped after about 10 mins! The next time I used heavy duty thread and it lasted a few outings. This time I found this tutorial and decided to fork out the £3 or so for the supplies!

I didn't even know you got ribbon gripper thingys, what a great invention!

The beads are old, they came from my Great Aunt's house

and the flower is made with muslin offcuts with a sparkly button sewn in to the centre.

 I just glued the flower to the ribbon, last time I sewed it but I opted for the quicker option this time!

 Now to find an occasion that I am not dressed in jeans, t-shirt and trainers to wear it!!

Linking up to these fab linky parties!
